Despite the fact that it’s taking a classic piece of American literature and turning it into a 3-D film, Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby might not be quite as horrible as we first thought. Of course, I’m basing this opinion simply on a few photos that have leaked out from the set, but, that said, these do seem to capture, in their own small way, the mood and tone of the book.
Of course, these pics should look good, as the film’s budget is over $100 million and features a cast that’s pretty easy on the eye. That said, there’s still no indication if this film will actually be any good, or if there is any real reason for it to be filmed in 3-D besides simple gimmickry.
The Great Gatsby tells the story of Nick Carraway, a young writer who moves to New York in 1922, and comes under the sphere of Jay Gatsby, a mysterious millionaire, and his cousin, Daisy. The film adaptation, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan, is set for a Christmas 2012 release.
